About this Event

The King of the Rant is coming to the Hattiesburg Saenger Theater!

LEWIS BLACK, Grammy Award-winning, stand-up comedian announces his 2020 tour, 𝐼𝑡 𝐺𝑒𝑡𝑠 𝐵𝑒𝑡𝑡𝑒𝑟 𝐸𝑣𝑒𝑟𝑦 𝐷𝑎𝑦. "When I say, ‘It gets better every day,’ you might be wondering,‘ is he being facetious?’ Come to the show and find out...or stay home and wallow in your sadness.”

With trademark comedic yelling and finger-pointing, while laughing and raging at surrounding absurdities, Black is one of the most popular stand-up performers working today.

- There will be a BLOCK PARTY beginning at 6:30 p.m.

- Doors open at 7:00 p.m.

- The show starts at 8:00 p.m.

- Opening act - John Bowman

Black executes a brilliant trifecta as a stand-up comedian, actor, and author. Receiving critical acclaim, he performs more than 200 nights annually, to sold-out audiences throughout the world. He is one of a few performers to sell out multiple renowned theaters, including Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, Brooks Atkinson Theatre, New York City Center, the Main Stage at the Mirage in Las Vegas and a sold-out Broadway run at the Richard Rodgers Theatre in New York City. His live performances provide a cathartic release of anger and disillusionment for his audience.

Blacks' performances paint him as an irritated optimist more than a mean-spirited curmudgeon. Since 2014, he has done over 400 live streaming shows called: THE RANT IS DUE, and at the end of each of his stand-up performances, adds audience-written rants which have been submitted from the fans at his shows. With so much to get off their chests, people use Lewis’ platform to Rant about what’s on their minds.

Lewis Black continues as the longest-running contributor to THE DAILY SHOW on Comedy Central. He has had comedy specials on HBO, Comedy Central, Showtime and Epix. In 2001, he won Best Male Stand-Up at the American Comedy Awards. He has released 8 comedy albums, including the 2007 GRAMMY Award-winning Carnegie Hall Performance. He won his second GRAMMY Award for his album Stark Raving Black and has published 3 bestselling books: Nothing’s Sacred (Simon & Schuster, 2005), Me of Little Faith (Riverhead Books, 2008), and I’m Dreaming of a Black Christmas (Riverhead Books, 2010). In 2015, Black notably voiced the character “Anger” in the Academy Award-winning Pixar film, Inside Out.
